, thanks for your time, i appreciate it. >> president obama's speech at the center for american progress getting buzz today and for several reasons. the washington post says, quote, it's the best speech obama has given on the economy and it's a provocative speech on race and politico says it is his most substantive on the intersection of race and politics, and this is our topic for the agenda panel today. we have serena maxwell, condition contributor to the grio, and sabrina is from "the huffington post." the president has not spoken much about race in his speeches and that's why so many ears perked up yesterday to this. here's what he had to say about this about why that is contributed and why washington considers to act on issues on economic inequality. take a listen. >> there is the myth that this is a problem restricted to a small share of predominantly minority poor. this isn't a broad-based problem. it's a black problem or a hispanic problem or a native-american problem. >> he said this is one of the better speeches he's given in trying to lay it out realistically and honestly abou

bernstein and randy weingarten. thank you both for being here. >> jared, i thought obama care was supposed to be a job killer. what happened here? >> i thought the way you put it was right. they're going to have to go for a new talking point. not only did we add 203,000 jobs last month in november, but if you look over the past 11 months just over the year 2013, we've averaged about 190,000 jobs per month. so the trend of the last couple of months has actually been a lasting one. the unemployment rate fell from 7.3% to 7%. sometimes when we've talked about declining unemployment in recent months, it's been because people left the job market. but not in november. we had people coming into the job market and finding jobs. now, we're not out of the woods. 7% is too high an unemployment rate. i'm sure you would agree with me. but we're certainly headed in the right direction and perhaps at a faster clip than we thought. completely inconsistent with those talking points. >> no doubt about it. but, you know, randi here's a comparison of private sector jobs. under president bush, we measured his

see you, senator. thanks for coming in. let me start with your reaction to what's going on with obama care, because the white house says they're making progress. monday alone a million unique views. the pages are loading faster, people are able to get on. how do you feel about it right now? >> well, there's no doubt there's been some progress. not enough that my wife could get on yesterday, as you know, all members of congress and our staffs are forced onto the obama care exchanges. my wife made a valiant effort and she's pretty capable person and couldn't get us signed up. i'm sure they will work out the problems with the website. the website isn't the big problem with obama care, it's the fundamental design of the plan. it's the premise of the plan. it's the mandates that they have built into it. none of that is fixable. >> but you understand that is what congress voted for, that is what the supreme court affirmed. >> sure. >> and so onward? >> well, until we can change this. but there's nothing about a given piece of law that binds future congresses. i think it was badly flawed. wh
